(NPR)   It would be amusing if actor Micah Beals was sentenced to community service with NYC's parks and recreation if convicted of vandalizing the George Floyd statue in Union Square   (npr.org) divider line

Because there are 5 statues of Christopher Columbus in NYC.

I'm pretty sure they know who it is at this point, but what you're not considering is that both are possible.

Beals' attorney, Rebecca Heinsen of Legal Aid Society, declined to comment on the arrest or charge.

He's such a successful actor that he qualifies for free legal representation.

Can somebody explain for me why this statue looks like somebody took a small 3d printed bust of george floyd and blew it up to 100x scale?  That's kind of a baffling artistic choice.

Glad I wont see a certain portion of relatives the next few months, from what I have heard they were pretty much saying Floyd deserved to die because of his record and probably stuff about people making a statue for a criminal. I do kind of wish to see them so I could point out their own criminal records and ask if they deserve to die because of them too and the many statues to criminals all over the country, specifically the south. I would probably just get another death threat.

In a nutshell, because that's what they are. They're not 3d printed, but they're machined using a CNC process that removes the material from the medium in lines, so the end result looks about the same.
But it's a subtractive technique not additive like 3d printing, so it's a little different, but it started out as a CAD file.

/I googled it because I thought the same thing.

He sounds like another one of those f*cking morans who brings up Flyod's criminal record and is all butt hurt because people have made him into a hero when the truth is that Micah Wateverhecallshimself is just too f*ckingn stupid to know that Floyd is being remembered because he was a victim of racial injustice. Statues like this are not meant to inspire people to be like Floyd George. They are there to remind us of what happened to him in the hopes that that memory will help to ensure it does not happen again.

If he is sentenced to community service, it can't be for more than six hours. Why? Because according to IMDb, that's about as long as the dipshiat can hold a job. Can you really call someone an actor that had 10 bit-parts in 20 years?

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul called it "reprensible" and directed the Hate Crimes Task Force to help investigate.

Unfamiliar as yet with the new governor; but I'm hoping this is the work of just a sh*t journalist.  If you quote somebody, get it right.  Otherwise, just say, "Governor Kathy Hochul called it a reprensible act".  Unless she really used that word, you make her look stupid instead of you.

I am really good friends with a guy I have known for years and became very good friends with his then girlfriend/now wife. Never took her for a racist until she played the "If he did not want to die he should not have been passing counterfeit bills." When I pointed out that he did not deserve to die for passing a counterfeit bill, something he may not have known he was doing, she basically said he was a criminal and he has only himself to blame for his death, that if he had not been a criminal he would be alive. Yeah, I did not even reply to that. I simply blocked her phone number, email address, and on social media. Fark people like that.

What the fark are you talking about? Contemporary accounts have him being an actual protester at the Boston Massacre and the plaque you posted a picture of specifically calls him a Hero of the Revolution. So while he may not have been knowingly participating in a revolution he was most certainly protesting one of the injustices that led to the revolution. Yeah, that is a hell of a lot different than George Floyd being a victim of police violence.

To be fair, the following statue was commissioned and approved by a city. I believe to commemorate the amazing work done by Lon Chaney Jr. in the 1941 film The Wolfman, depicted in bronze mid-transformation.

So... what convinces me that this guy is not just a racist, but a complete and utter moron is that he could have easily worn a mask and made it that much harder to be identified. It's one thing to do crime in broad daylight, but take some time to conceal your identity at least, ya know?

Uncool story bro....
My brother had a friend who vandalized a college's outdoor fountain by pouring dish soap into it. (vandalizing in that it cost money to fix). The thing is, he went to the trouble to dress up as an old man and used a walking stick (hollow aluminum tube) as a soap delivery system. (details of this withheld intentionally). Sure, he thought he was a genius and that he'd pulled off the funniest caper the town had ever seen... and it is true, campus police and local law was in fact looking for an elderly dude as the suspect. It made local hick news. Huge caper... yeah.

Point is, I see this actor idiot, and remembering that I know some idiots... at least my idiot used a disguise, and also did something that wasn't racist...

So in conclusion, that racist actor idiot must have wanted to be caught since he could have worn any number of masks and nobody would have been alarmed by his presence until he committed the crime. Also, dish soap will damage large outdoor fountains.
